The Bobcats exploded for 26 points in the third quarter to start to pull away from the Comets. Leading 55-23 heading to the fourth quarter, Brandywine held Coloma to three points to cruise home with the non-conference victory.

Jaremiah Palmer scored a game-high 14 points to lead the Bobcats, who also got 10 points from Bryon Linley. Jamier Palmer, Nylen Goins and Brock Dye all finished with nine points.

Tyrell Taylor had 11 points to pace the Comets. He was the lone Coloma play to reach double figures.
